Why Does "The Fade" Have a Prominent Place in College Football?

By Athlon Sports, 2 months 3 weeks ago
Every fan has experienced it. Your team has the ball in scoring position. It’s a big moment. And before you can say, “Run the dang ball!” your quarterback is cocking back to lob the football toward the back corner of the end zone. It lands two yards out of bounds, safely out of reach of the nearest offensive and defensive players. You fill with rage. You scream obscenities at...

Unfortunately for college football fans, teams from the Big Ten and SEC rarely face each other more than once in the regular season. Why should we have to wait until late December and early January to see these two conferences clash in bowl games?   In an effort to spice up the non-conference slates of both leagues, I propose the following matchups. As a bonus, I have suggested a slogan...
